Report: Relocation could signal progress on a massive, district-altering project in Dunwoody

For the past eight years, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution hasn’t been written and compiled in Atlanta, but rather, for the most part, in a Dunwoody newsroom near Perimeter Mall.

But the newspaper could reportedly soon return to the city.

According to Reporter Newspapers, the AJC is in talks to move staff to the northern reaches of Midtown, where they would share space with WSB-TV.

The facility, located on West Peachtree Street—ironically on the only block of the street located east of Peachtree Street—borders Ansley Park.

While the move is big news for the paper, the insights it may give into the future of the Dunwoody location could be even bigger.

The office park the paper currently occupies sits on land slated to be part of a massive mixed-use development adjacent to Dunwoody MARTA Station called High Street.

Coincidentally, the High Street site has been floated as a possible location for Amazon, should they choose to locate their new headquarters in the shortlisted Atlanta area.

The project has been in the works for years, but no new information has been released since 2016.

Development is certainly heating up in the area, with projects including the new State Farm campus and a two-tower office and hotel development across the station platform from the High Street site.
